Chief Executive’s Comments

Hemnet delivered strong results for the first quarter of the year, supported by growing demand for our value-added services for property sellers and an increase in the number of published listings. The increase in listings is connected to a generally higher activity in the market, with more transactions, increasing housing prices and a more positive sentiment among consumers, where the number of homebuyers expecting prices to increase or maintain is now at 45%, the highest since September 2020.

Revenue from property sellers increased by 49.1 percent, and ARPL increased by 32.5 percent. Sales of Hemnet Premium continued to increase and the growing demand led to a more than doubled conversion compared to the same period last year. In addition, the number of published listings increased 11 percent as a result of increased confidence in the housing market.

Real estate agents are Hemnet’s most important partners and we are focused on building strong agent relations. Following last quarter’s announcement on the update of the compensation and commission model, we have taken several initiatives to ensure a smooth transition, for real estate agent offices in particular, to the new model. We have also begun the gradual roll out of our fully digital flow that will simplify and streamline the buying and publication process for all property sellers and agents.

Many of our B2B customers, especially property developers, continue to be impacted by market uncertainties.This is reflected in lower sales of our display advertising products. The decline in revenue was partially offset by continued demand and revenue growth from our Hemnet unique B2B products.

During the quarter we have continued to improve the consumer experience on Hemnet, for example by improving our maps, updating app navigation and including energy classification for properties in the result list, nudging our visitors to consider environmental aspects when looking for a new home.

With 40 million monthly visits, Hemnet stands as Sweden’s premier property platform, connecting the largest concentration of sellers and buyers to facilitate efficient property transactions. We are maintaining our market leadership through our commitment to our growth plan as we continue to invest in product development, enhancements in consumer and customer experience and in strengthened relationships with agents.
